named hotel Good sample rooms and a firstrclabs table Rates very reasonable Feed stable attached VVVVV FIGURES FROM TILE RECORD In his opening speech at Mun fordville Col Belknap the Re publican can ite for Governor t made the statement that at the close of the administration of W O Bradley 1100000 was turned over to the Democratic Adminis tration Col Belknap was gross ly in error in this statement and the records of the Treasurers office at Frankfort will disprove it Col Belknap forgot that W O Bradley was succeeded by W S Taylor and not by the Democrats He says at the close of Bradleys term there was in the State Treasury 110061497 But if this money was on hand at that time that is the 1100000 it went into the hands of the Republican officials under Taylor on January 1 1900 and all except 86477187 was spent by them Taylor was a Republican Governor until ousted by the decision of the General As sembly Those who held office with him were likewise Republican officials This vast sum which it is claimed that Bradley had on hand when the Democrats took charge had dwindled to 36477187 What became of all this money 1 It will not relieve the Republican party from the charge of mismanagement or mis appropriation to show that Brad ley accumulated a million dollars if his Republican successor squandered or misappropriated it In this transaction all Republicans look alike It is no excuse that Bradley paid Taylor Republi cans must answer to the people of this Commonwealth for Taylor as well as Bradley They are respon sible alikt for the official acts ofI bothYet according to Belknaps idea of business as expounded in his Munfordville speech the present administration with what Taylor received giving no credit and estimating the revenue Mr Belknap arrives at the conclusion that we have bought or government at the rate of five million a year This is an amazing finan cial blunder for a business man to the first time in 18 years the State of Kentucky IB nowabI solutely out of debt and every cent of the debt which was piled up in former years has been paid the administration of GovI BeokhamjThere are but three other States in the Union which enjoy the same distinction as Kentucky Nebraska New Jersey and West Virginia now being out of debtcWhen Bradley came into office of his first official acts was toIissue 500000 of 4 per cent ten year bonds He realized fromI these bonds 589000 He caused the tax rate to be raised from 471 to 52c and it so remained durcing the last three years of his ad ministration j but at the beginning of the Democratic adminis tration it dropped back to 4710I and so remained during 1900 andc 1901 The rate during 1902 and 1903 was 50c It will thus be seen that the Republican administration uDder Gov Bradley for three yearshad the highest rate of taxation everJ known in Kentucky The differ ence in the amount of the revenue produced under this high rate andI the rate which has prevailed un der the present administration isI 1000800 in round numbers To this sum should be added 539000 proceeds of State bonds sold These sums amounting to 1500 800 in round numbers represents RepuQficanthat received by the Democrats for a like period What became of this vast sum It was more than enough to have paid off all the debts which Itwaa clamed that the State owed when Bradley assumed office and al oto have left the State free of debt But instead of this we find that the State owed more khan a million and a halt dollars and the close of Taylors term and had nothing withwhich to pay it Again we ask What became of this vast imp received by the Republican ad ministration in excess of the ordi nary revenue Instead of the State being free IIOHI debtattk e jifS f Y close of Taylors term there was left an indebtedness of 1700000 in round numbers BIG INVESTMENTS MADE The Republican platform de nounces the Democratic party be cause it fetters enterprise ex eludes capital and handicaps in dustry in Kentucky Like any other statement of al leged facts contained in that platform this declaration is shown by the records to be untrue A plain statement will refute the chargeaDuring the four years of tho Re publican administration under Gov Bradley there were organized under the corporation laws of the State 822 corporations with an- aggregateoapitaiof26526940 and the organization tax paid into the State Treasury therefor was 2652694 During the first three years and six months of the Beck ham administration up to June 80 1908 there were organized un der the corporation laws of the State 1792 corporations with an aggregate authorized capital of 99602795 and the organization tax paid into the treasury therefor was 99608 It is thus shown that during three and one half years of Democratic administra tion that 69075855 more of capital found its way into tho State of Kentucky and invested lathe channels of trade than did under the full term of four years while Bradley was Governor There maining six months of the present administration from July let to December 81st of this year will unquestionably increase the sum ot capital invested in corporations in the State at least 10000000 which will show largely over 100 000000 of capital has been invested in Kentucky under the Beck ham administration against 26 000000 during Bradleys term The Belknap Hardwre Co certainly thinks the State is all right as it has increased its stock 1 500000iTHOU SHALT NOT STEAL Some days ago the Constitution sug geated that the Democrats would do well to keynote their campaign next year with the commandment Thou sbalt not steal There seemed to us peculiar appropriateness about its iteration in the face of recent revelations in the republican record in administering the government- We are surprised and disappointed in a measure to find our valued contemporary the Washington Post in disagreement with the proposal The Post takes the broad grounds that Thou shalt not steal would be an unconvincing and unconvcrtlng plank the platform because everybody bel- Ieves in the principal and least of all would the republicans contest it indeed taking alarm already over the results of their own investigations they are trying to head off the democratic attacks on republican mallets ances by proposing prosecution and a coogreas1ona1investigatlonBut says concerning the cases at bar we still in slat that the commandment is an avail ablejssue with the republican system of politics far and away beyond the specific instances of mailbag fasteners and timeclock contract or any of the cheap criminal grafts of pending pros shalt not steal is a valid issue to make with the republican tariff policy To make it does not inyolve wholesale attack upon a protective policy wisely adjusted to conserve the astral interests of American manu factures labor and commerce It does go however to the very root jtf the system of bounties embodied in the Dlagley bill and reaped by UBcouata ble millions to those who have no val id claim or honest right to overcharge and thereby rob the American people atlarge Thou shalt sot steal is a proper principal to oppose to the repubUar systeaof national finance under which the money powers of the coHHtiy are given power to either commed or coerce the public treaaury to s fve the purposes of the pOMymoBftrs and speculators of Wall strg t If

states for the establishment irrigation systems of doubtful value The whole arid lands irrigation graft Is a plan to rob Peter John and James to pay political debts and party retainer fees to Paul the

many millions of the peoples money on the profit aide of the ledge of American ship owners who eve now do not know what to do with heir profits from current business In fact we are of the candid

VOTE DEMOCRATIC Numerous reasons can be given why voters should not cast their ballot for Col Belknap in the coming election Thecomparison of the administration of Gov Backham with the administration of his two predecessors W S Taylor and W 0 Bradley show plain ly why the people of the State should prefer Democratic rule rather than government by the republicans Among the reasons why citizens should vote against Col Belknap and the republican ticket are the follow ing KentecKy stolen from Bryan In 1896 Bradleys administration extrava gant and corrupt with scandals in pub institutionsThe military in Louisville and of thin ballots in the mountains the purpose of both being the defeat of the popular will and the debauching of the ballot box The calling out of the military under Bradley to overawe the Legislature and prevent the election of a United States Senator and by Taylor to destroy the Legislature and prevent the election of a Governor The dispersal of the Legislature at the point of the bayonet and its chas ing through the streets of the State capital by an armrd soldiery The defiance of the courts by Taylor and his overthrow of the great writ of habeas corpus The

greatest develop went ever experienced in this part u f vb country tt f t fTHEIt should be biahly gratifying to all friends of education In this part of the State that the Methodist denomlna lion through the Louisville Conference Intends to make the School in Columbia one of the great Institutions of tlleStateA ago Conference met In Marion and 81305 was pledged for the Columbia School Beslaes this magnificent free will offering the Educa tional Board was empowered to use as much as 800000 this conference year in building dormutorles The mem theIbrick dormatories are before them It Is highly probable that a decision to build the two will be reached within few hours and arrangements made Have them ready for use by January col1egelwlllOne year ago a great effort was being m sde here to meet the proposition that secured this school Active earnest and persistent effort dispelled every rear and doubt when the Educational Board last December accepted the results of our efforts From that day to the presest we have looked forward to the time when the college building could be dedicated when the merry voices of the young could be heard on the hill which we trust will inspire confidence and elicit aid from many who have doubted and withheld substantial encouragement from such a worthy and valuable enterprise We are now approaching that au spiclous day The building will within a few molt weeks be ready for use and school will open in January It is neat in deslgDi strong and substantial in make up and of ample capacity to meet the requirements It is highly probable that it will be dedicated on Thanksgiving day and truly this would be the most appro priate day of all No school of a simi lar nature in this State basso much good will behind it no one basso much enthusiasm and determination to make It strong and powerful in shaping the intellectualadvancement of Southern Kentucky There will be no need for oar young men to go to Bowling Greec Louisville or Lexington to acquire a business course no necessity for our teachers to seek a Normal School outside of the healthy cllmeof our own sunny side of Kentucky for both these departments will be a part of this school The necessity for dormatories is apparent and while the Board is limited to two small amount to build two such structures yet it Is hoped that the friends of the school will come to the rescue Rev C R Payne was elected by the conference as business manager of the school and we deslro to say that no mis take has been made Mr Payne is a man of ability full of energy and de termination
